Community Capital offers no-cost pre- and post-loan support to help you navigate business challenges. From the time our borrowers anticipate receiving a loan, until they sell or transfer your business, our Business Advisors can help design actionable, customized plans and attainable goals to improve the viability and profitability of their businesses.

Community Capital of Vermont’s mission is to help small businesses and lower income entrepreneurs prosper through the provision of flexible business financing.

“Community Capital made me feel that my company was more than just a business — they could back my deep convictions. Their support of my endeavor from the beginning, through construction, opening and beyond has been exemplary and beyond anything I could have asked for. They continue to make a dream come true for my family.”
